Las Vegas coming soon

Posted 12:28 PM ET | Comments 12
So here you are Harrah's is ready to make the push. With a CSI mastermind loving the game can it be that far fetched that we will have the NHL in Vegas? VIP suites at ice level.... a 300 million ice making machine and slots on the bench.

Rest assured hockey in Vegas will change the way the rest of the NHL showcases itself.

if you honestly think that after the NBA already said no, and the NHL has essentially said no, that because Vegas is going to build an arena on the strip of sin city, that they're going to get a team? you're out of your mind. what commissioner would want the headache that would go with this club?

BOOOOOOOOOOO! Las Vegas is all tourism. Who is going to root for them?....I know who but i dont want to get in trouble :wink:

Never. The only way that city gets a team, is if they can find enough people stupid enough to gamble on it every single game. If Vegas gets a team, I think I'd have to go to law school and personally do everything within my power to make sure it loses it's team.

The fans of Hamilton certainly deserve the next team, if more are awarded. Meanwhile, as for the newly announced soon-to-be-built Harrah's arena on the strip, just treat it like everything else in Vegas...sex it up! Ideas: 1) Burlesque hockey (females, of course) with feathers and appropriate headgear. 2) Do it up like old performers do on the strip...retirement center - hmmmm, how exciting...can't wait. 3) full size holographic facsimile players complete with betting stations, slots, ashtrays, cocktail waitresses, you name it...24 hours a day (easy to rig for the house). I vote for #1.All in jest, but then I remember - it's Vegas. One never knows.

I guess it doesn't count all the people from other parts of the country that have moved there.. "Non tourists".. I think they would defintaly support a team and have a large and growing population that are very into sports, including the majority of east coast transplants. Having lived there for a few years of my life I can vouch for this and am kind of amazed at how people just associate places based on what they see on TV or the common thought without living there. If small cities like Buffalo and Columbus have them I would not be so quick to say its just tourists. Check the population data people.

True. And LV is a lot of fun. But one other consideration is that, while the population is huge and growing and has lots of money, they are also probably the most transient city in our part of the world. Seems as though it might be tougher to build a base. To appeal to the locals, any pro team sports arena would probably be better downtown and off the strip.
